Rockpooling on the Yorkshire Coast
Some of our places on the Yorkshire Coast have rocky shores which are excellent for rockpooling when the tide is out. Try Saltburn, Robin Hoods Bay and Boggle Hole - you could be surprised at the variety of wildlife to be found.

Golden rules of rockpooling
Always check the tide times before going out rockpooling and be aware that the tide can move fast on its way in and catch you out. Watch your step on uneven rocks and seaweed.
Cause as little disturbance as possible
Always put overturned stones back as you found them and return wildlife to the place you found it, without keeping it from its natural habitat for too long.
Handle with care
While it’s great to get a closer look at your finds, you must be careful. Some creatures may nip or sting and others are very fragile.
